“The earlier disclosure was made pursuant to facility agreement dated 8 September 2022 entered into between Twin Star Holding Limited (as borrower), Vedanta Resources Limited and Welter Trading Limited (as original guarantors), and Standard Chartered Bank (Singapore) Limited (as original lender)… for the purposes of availing a facility of an aggregate amount of USD 100,000,000.

“However, the said facility has been repaid and the encumbrance has been released,” Vedanta said in a filing to Bombay Stock Exchange.

Vedanta Resources had said it has pre-paid all of its debt that was due for repayment till March 2023, deleveraging by $2 billion (£1.65 billion) in the past 11 months.

Further, it said the company is confident of meeting its liquidity requirements for the quarter ending June 2023.
